Spain’s Navantia-Windar consortium has loaded the first two out of four jacket foundations built for the 28MW Nissum Bredning demonstration offshore wind project at Navantia’s facility in Fene.
In January 2017, Siemens chose the Navantia-Windar joint venture for the supply of three-legged jacket foundations and accompanying piles for four 7MW offshore wind turbines to be installed at the demonstration offshore wind farm off Denmark.
Nissum Bredning Vindmøllelaug and Jysk Energi, the owners and developers of Nissum Bredning Vind project, made the final investment decision for the 28MW pilot project in September 2016.
The offshore wind project will see four Siemens 7MW direct drive wind turbines on jacket foundations, as well as a new 66kV voltage solution including a new transformer, cable and switchgear systems, along with further innovations regarding tower and controller settings.
The elements to be tested in Nissum Bredning are expected to contribute to cost reduction of future offshore wind projects.
